Beauty Salon Suites You Can Afford to Rent? How is that Possible?

By March 14, 2024Salon Spa Blog
Not all beauty salon suite rentals are the same

A beauty salon needs to be housed in a retail building.  We all know that. It’s been that way since the early 20th Century.  And, if you are in the beauty industry, you understand that the leasing or a retail building is an expensive undertaking, expensive to the point that it discourages many talented beauticians from owning a beauty salon.

We are Salon & Spa Galleria, leading the way in the Greater Fort Worth area with twenty-three affordable salon suite rental locations. Call us at 817-917-1416 for more information.

The cost of a traditional beauty salon.

Let’s revisit that retail building we mentioned earlier.  Leasing a retail location can easily cost you between $1500-$5000 per month, depending of course on the size of the building and its location.

Once you have found such a building, you then need to furnish it.  In addition you will need to arrange for signage, have the utilities put under your name and turned on, arrange for WiFi, arrange for your personalized web page, come to an agreement with a product supplier for those items you wish to sell, and . . .

Well, let’s just say it is a daunting task and leave it at that. Conservatively speaking, before you open your doors for business, you are looking at a start-up investment of $20,000 or more, and we believe that estimate is conservative.

The cost of salon suite rentals.

Using our own Salon & Spa Galleria for a comparison example, a salon suite rental will cost you between$300-$750 per month depending on the size of the salon suite. Included in that rental fee are the following:

  • 24/7 salon access
  • 24/7 security monitoring
  • Plenty of parking for tenants and clients
  • Convenient access
  • Handicap accessible
  • Wide hallways
  • Comfortable waiting area
  • On-site laundry room free to all tenants. We even provide soap.
  • Break room with microwave, sink, Keurig, and refrigerator.
  • Endless instant hot water with tankless hot water heaters.
  • Smart TV with fiber in each room
  • Free Wi-Fi for tenants and your customers
  • Decorate your suite how you want!
  • Utilities included (water and electricity)
  • Wash bowl or sink in each suite.
  • Beautiful state-of-the-art equipment available
  • A personalized web page
  • A 26-step business plan/model
  • Free workshops

Start-up costs? $5000 or less for most clients we deal with, usually closer to a couple thousand dollars.

Go big or go small? Which is best for you?

This really is the question you face: Do you take Door #1, with five or six workstations, with the higher overhead, and the higher initial investment, or do you take Door #2 with one or two workstations, lower overhead, and lower initial investment.  The potential for a higher income rest behind Door #1, but so does the potential for more things going wrong.

Which is best for you? We simply cannot answer that question.  Only you know you.

A final word about Salon & Spa Galleria.

Salon and Spa Galleria is locally owned and operated.  How successful are we with beauty salon suites? Pre-COVID we had ten locations; four years later we have twenty-three. Obviously we are doing something right.
